Myopia is a disease that affects the ability to clearly see objects far away. While nearby objects look clear, objects further away become blurry. This is because the shape of the eyes causes light rays to bend or refract incorrectly, resulting in images being focused in front of the retina instead of on the retina. Myopia is a progressive condition and tends to arise when the child is in his or her growing years. If myopia is left untreated, the condition will worsen throughout adulthood. Over the years, more and more children are diagnosed with myopia due to several reasons, the most common ones being hereditary, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices like doing work close-up and not reading in proper lighting. While myopia cannot be cured, it can be prevented from worsening, as long as the individual undertakes the right preventive measures. This is where Treehouse Eyes comes in.
About Our Overnight Contact Lenses
Treehouse Eyes’ Overnight Contact Lenses are specially designed to be worn only in the evening as your child goes to bed. As such, our Overnight Contact Lenses should be worn during sleep and taken out in the morning before your child prepares for the day. Specifically called KIDS Lenses, these lenses are custom-made for each child to gently and comfortably reshape the cornea, which is the clear front surface of the eye. It’s incredibly important to ensure that our Overnight Contact Lenses are tailored to each child as everyone’s eye shape is different. If the lenses do not fit a particular eye shape, the eyes may get infected by a corneal abrasion. As such, at Treehouse Eyes, each child will undergo a consultation to receive his or her very own lenses that are fitted to their unique eye shape. Studies have shown that myopia progression can be slowed dramatically and, in some cases, stopped through this treatment in children.
Benefits of Our Overnight Contact Lenses for Kids
Since our Overnight Contact Lenses are meant to be worn at night during sleep, this means that your child will be wearing these contacts at home. No longer do you have to be worried that the lenses go missing outside, and your child need not fret over the potential risk of the lenses dropping when engaging in outdoor activities. If your child wears our Overnight Contact Lenses, otherwise called KIDS lenses, diligently every night, you’ll find that there’s no need for glasses or prescription contacts during the day, as your child can see clearly as he or she goes about the day in school, partaking in activities without any issue.
